It took me four years to do it but I finally did it! Today, I told my mom that I am gay. She took it really well (as I expected her to) but it was the scariest five minutes of my life. There were tears and there were some laughs. But in my heart, I know she will always love me no matter what I do - unless of course I murder someone then I know she'll throw me away. Now... to any of you that are gay and are still "in the closet" it's okay; take your time, no one is rushing you. Be yourself. In the words of Mark Hoppus - "I'm gay. So what. Don't judge. My butt" LOL... sorry but I had to say that.
